EZ Dresden Quilting Challenge

While blog hopping along a couple days ago, I found this blog … They are hosting a quilting challenge to use an 18 degree ruler … oh, go give it a look.  You’ll see some really beautiful quilts, tutorials and a great challenge with some really AWESOME prizes! ! !  Take a peek (!) and join the fun!

Now I can tell

you about a doll that I made for a blogger friend.  The dear, sweet woman was visited by all kinds of just plain ole bad “stuff” the entire month of May.  So I and another doll maker decided we would cheer her up by sending her a little something.  It was a great joy to make this doll and send it to her.  She was COMPLETELY surprised and awed!  I only wish I could have been a fly on the wall when she opened that box!!!  Lol…

Here is another pose of “June Tah’ – Hah’ – Net’ … read more about her here…. http://celebratingchristmasyearround.blogspot.com/2012/06/i-am-going-to-swallow-flies.html
